AceShowbiz - Troy Ave couldn't be more happier with the trial's outcome in Taxstone's shooting case. After the podcaster was slapped with a 35-year prison sentence for shooting his bodyguard, Ronald "Banga" McPhatter, the Brooklyn-born emcee celebrated it by selling T-shirts mocking the latter.
Making use of Instagram, Troy unleashed photos of T-shirts that featured Taxstone's face superimposed over an image of Kevin Durant during his time with the Oklahoma City Thunder. On the top of the 35 jersey number, it's written, "Prison City."
In the caption, Troy asked fans to help him name his upcoming project. "Need y'all help real quick, So Im sending A 35 dollar cash app to whoever leaves the best Album Title in the comments below," he wrote. "Album Drop Friday, so hurry up."
"Oh yea We got [flame emoji] New Merch on the website too #swipeleft orders yours now the sale only last for 35 Hrs," Troy continued. He then added hashtags, "#DearHaterIWon #SpreadLoveDestroyHate."
Following the sentencing, Taxstone took to Twitter to get things off his chest. "Just got 35 years for being victimized and reversing the situation the beauty in it all is ..I'm not doing 35. Be safe tho," he wrote. "Do not protect yourself in NYC if someone attacks you just die if you don't prefer jail."
"How can you testify in open court that you and your friend decided to beat me up then beat me up and I protected myself and u claim self defense ??? Where's the republicans when you need them," he continued. "Don't worry my appeal will be swift."
When a Twitter user advised Taxstone to calm down to avoid making "anymore enemies in tha government," he shot back, "F**k the government."
